As Rochester’s City Attorney in particular, but also as a lawyer and litigator generally, Terence is prepared to “hit the ground running” and meet his Congressional duties head-on, as it is, quite literally, Terence’s job to suggest, draft, prepare, present, modify and interpret laws on a daily basis.
